At last, scientists seem to have discovered a way to make living cells long-lasting.
Ageing, an unavoidable part of the human life cycle, is arguably one of humankind's worst enemies.
Owing to technological advancements, scientists are now able to make cells last longer.
Although we do not have a cure for everything, however, especially a cure for ageing is highly needed.
The good news is that researchers have accomplished a giant forward leap in the work to slow the maturing system with a clever procedure that expands the life expectancies of yeast cells by an astounding 82 per cent.
Researchers were able to prevent cells from fully committing to either deterioration process by programming them to switch between two ageing pathways.
This method nearly doubled the lifespan of the cells.
This manufactured "flip switch" offers a potential guide toward medicines that might one day at some point broaden human life span.
However, that future is profoundly speculative for now.
Of course, more studies are needed to be done, but even this small step is a huge hope for humankind.
With advanced technology, it might be possible to prevent ageing in the future.
Although it is a natural process to be born, get old and die, humankind has always been trying to find ways to prevent either ageing or dying or both.
